I got my hands on a broken Wii from a customer of mine. Traded it for an install. Here is whats wrong with it. Where can I buy a new Ribbon cable?

- Ribbon cable for DVDROM has a hole in it.
- Clip for the Ribbon on the DVDROM broken
- Solder bridging a couple of connections on the firmware chips legs.

I'm looking to buy a new ribbon cable and a set of screws to put it back together with. Does anyone know where I can get something like that?

Here are some pictures of the carnage.

Damn they did a number on this, what were they using an old 50's SEARS soldering gun and an ice pick to keep the cable stationary, LOL.

I am sure you could get a ribbon cable from DigiKey or Mouser. The screws I would check with an electronics surplus place or maybe even McMaster-Carr ( doubt the later but its just screws). If you know the sizes of the screws than it should be obtainable.
